Valentine’s Day Red Velvet Oreo Truffle Brownie Bars!

UPDATE: A few commenters were having trouble with the red velvet layer crumbling and not being able to support the heavy chocolate layers so I reworked that layer and the recipe below is updated. 

Alright guys. This recipe will have you in your stretchy leggings in no time flat, but it’s all worth it. They are a layer of red velvet brownies (I could stop here and be satisfied but what’s the fun in that) with an Oreo truffle layer (I know, the inside of Oreo truffles..) topped with chocolate and mini chocolate chips. Yes, Oreo truffle! As in, the filling in addictive Oreo truffles spread out across red velvet brownies. Sinful. Sultry. Perfect.

Decadent red velvet oreo truffle brownie bars!

Now, if you’re against cake mixes then substitute this fully homemade version of red velvet brownies from Southern Living. Up to you! Cake mixes make my chaotic life easier so I used them there.

Here are the main items needed for these decadent little bars of heaven…full printable + save-able recipe at the end of the post!

How to make Red Velvet Oreo Truffle Brownie Bars!

Red Velvet Oreo Truffle Brownie Bars

Ingredients

  • 1 Duncan Hines box Red Velvet cake mix
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 package Jell-O insant white chocolate pudding (3.3 ounces)
  • 6 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 package Oreos
  • 8 ounce package cream cheese
  • 1/2 package (1/2lb) chocolate bark (CandiQuick) (or about 1-1/2 cups chocolate chips)
  • mini chocolate chips for garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Combine cake mix, melted butter, eggs, pudding mix, vegetable oil and mix well until thoroughly combined (2-3 minutes on medium of electric mixer).
  2. Spray a 9x13 with nonstick cooking spray. I like the baking variety that has flour in it. Then spread the red velvet brownie layer into the pan. It will be VERY thick, use the back of a spoon (or clean hands) to help spread it into all edges of the pan.
  3. Bake for 20-22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean (ovens vary so watch closely). Let cool completely before flipping out.
  4. Crush package of Oreos in a food processor (or in a large plastic bag and rolling pin).
  5. Melt cream cheese for 15 seconds in a microwave to soften.
  6. Stir together crushed Oreos and cream cheese until blended smooth.
  7. Carefully spread out Oreo truffle mixture on top of baked red velvet brownies. Use your hands to help press it down instead of spreading to avoid tearing the brownies.
  8. Melt chocolate candy bark (or chocolate chips) and pour over top Oreo truffle layer.
  9. Sprinkle with mini chocolate chips while still warm.
  10. Let cool competely before cutting into squares.

    Absolutely irresistible, chocolatey gooey goodness! Cannot wait to make these! Thank you for sharing.

  11. 15

    Sorry for the dumb question…I’m in Canada but I’ve never heard of Candiquick..what is it? any ideas where I can find it? Thanks

    • 16

      Not a dumb question at ALL! It’s a chocolate candy bark found in the baking aisle near the chocolate chips. You could always just use milk or semi-sweet chocolate chips instead :) The real magic is with the other 2 layers!

  12. 18

    Great job, Courtney! This looks sooo cute and yummy!

  13. 20

    Are you trying to kill me?! OMG these sound so good! Definitely making them for VDay.

  15. 23

    wow, this cake looks amazing.I would love to make it but I have never heard of 1 package (1lb) chocolate bark (CandiQuick), can any tell what it is so I can see if there is something similar here that I can use. Thank you

  16. 26

    I am thinking of adding melted carmel on top of the oreos…

  17. 28

    I’m curious why you used chocolate bark instead of milk chocolate? Does it taste better? I’m asking because I am not a big fan of the bark, but will try it.

    • 29

      Hi Michelle! I had the bark on hand and knew it melted very easily (this recipe was just a last-minute whim idea). You can absolutely use chocolate (I’ve recommended that to a lot of people here in the comments if they either (a) don’t want to use bark or (b) have never heard of bark.

    I just made these, and although they taste delicious the red velvet cake is super crumbly. It loses all form when I take it out of the pan. Any ideas on how to prevent this next time?

  19. 32

    I’m doing a bakesale this week to fundraise for a Conference and I can’t wait to make these! They look awesome :)

  20. 34

    Do these need stored in the fridge? I made them last night and put them in the fridge, but they are too hard to get out of the pan. I was thinking cream cheese would need refrigeration. Thoughts?

    • 35

      Hi Crystal! I made them and they were eaten right after that so I haven’t had experience refrigerating them. Chocolate can have a “bloom” problem when being refrigerated. You can google “bloom” to learn more about that but my guess would be making them the same-day you plan toe at them. If you do refrigerate them, I’d leave them out for about an hour before cutting them so they aren’t too hard. Hope this helps!

      I stored them in the fridge and had no problems. I ended up heating them in the microwave and it was so much tastier! Definitely recommend warming before serving. The gooey of the chocolate and brownie are to die for.
